The increasingly competitive cost of PV electricity has helped open a new market segment in certain regions of Spain: auto-consumption installations that will receive no incentives. PV installations have been realized in accordance with new regional administrative procedures and electric company responses related to national regulations in force since December 2011 (Royal Decree 1699/2011).
